Recommendations on module

Recommended Posts

I have made a couple of oscommerce based stores now and have always had free shipping on everything.

 

I am currently making a store for a customer who wants to charge the following price for their shipping.

I have been looking through the shipping modules, there are loads, and as such I’m getting a bit lost with which would be the best to use for this project.

 

Does anyone have any recommendations for which to use?

 

Thanks for any suggestions and help on this one.

Thanks for the reply.

 

I've been reading up on zone rates shipping and in the knowledge base it says that you can only charge for shipping based on weight and not order total.

 

Would you mind giving me a bit more detail on how you acheived it?

 

Thanks for your help.

I've still been looking into this and did start trying to make extra table rate modules but I wasn't having loads of success.

 

Then I stumbled upon this module http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/2571

 

It seems to be doing the trick I need to do some more testing but it looks very promising.

 

I'll post again when I've tested it further.

That module has worked perfectly and I'm currently implementing it to the live store.

Hi,

 

New to this.

 

This shipping module is exactly what I need. With regard to the installation instructions No. 2 what exactly does 'import the sql file xxx to the DB' mean?

 

Cheers

Perhaps moreover - exactly where am I meant to put this file?

OK I got over the installation problems, but having installed it no postage appears in the live preview at all - any suggestions?
